Squirrel eating a Frito

This is a discussion on Squirrel eating a Frito within the Animals (mammals, birds, insects etc.) forums, part of the Show your photo (Color) - Landscape & Nature (flowers, mountains, storms etc.) category; Kind of a boring shot but I like the detail...

    Both good shots! Really dig the overall comp in shot 1. Somebody's been hitting golf balls and doesn't even realize it

    In terms of bringing shot 1 up a bit more, look at the top edge. Brightness on an edge like that is a sure eye grabber - crop that puppy out. Left edge, also brightness distraction - burn it in. For me, this is essential to bringing images up a notch.

    For shot 2 - look at the gesturing of the squirrel's eye and paws. there's tension there. That's awesome! So for me shot 2 is actually more interesting but to my eye shot 1 looks cleaner.

    Eyen though this is a squirrel and they are everywhere...getting a shot like this is not easy because you always have the background to examine before you click the shutter.
    Hard and exhausting after doing it for a few hours, (if you dare) but well worth the effort.
